Kent Messenger Maidstone - West Kent Property - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s still early days for the new Crest Ni­chol­son site, Chantry Green at Har­ri­et­sham, but keen buy­ers can reg­is­ter now for all the lat­est news on prices.

The de­vel­op­ment, which has easy ac­cess to the A20 and M20, will be a mix of two and three-bed­room cot­tages and four-bed­room fam­ily homes. Prices are ex­pected to range from £350,000 to £560,000.

Crest Ni­chol­son says homes on the de­vel­op­ment will have tra­di­tional el­e­va­tions com­bined with con­tem­po­rary in­te­ri­ors and will be fin­ished to a high spec­i­fi­ca­tion.

A sales and mar­ket­ing suite is open­ing this month and reg­is­ter­ing early with Crest Ni­chol­son means that in­ter­ested buy­ers can be first to know as the plots are re­leased.

As well as the good lo­cal schools, the vil­lage hall of­fers craft af­ter­noons, monthly roller dis­cos and ten­nis clubs. Nearby pubs in­clude the Roe­buck Inn in West Street. For big shop­ping trips, Maid­stone and Ash­ford are both easy to reach.

The plot, in Graveney Road, has been grad­u­ally de­mol­ished over the last eight months af­ter sit­ting derelict for more than seven years. Devel­oper Bell­way hopes to build 12 one-bed­room flats, 18 two-bed­room flats, four two-bed­room houses, 39 three-bed­room houses and 32 four-bed­room houses on the seven acres of brown­field land. There will be a scat­ter­ing of open green spa­ces and nu­mer­ous af­ford­able homes on of­fer.

Early com­ments from neigh­bours sup­port the plans, but raise con­cerns about traf­fic, park­ing and pro­vi­sion of in­fra­struc­ture.

Manag­ing direc­tor for Bell­way’s Kent divi­sion, Chris Moore, said the com­pany was look­ing for­ward to re­ceiv­ing feed­back on its plans.

Swale Bor­ough Coun­cil’s plan­ning com­mit­tee will make a de­ci­sion whether the plans should be ap­proved later on in the year.
